14 month – Rainbow of Hope


14 month ago I started a Quilt top, the intention was to play with a new ruler I bought from Robin Ruth design. Loved how easy it was and how fast and beautiful the compasses build up. The end of the song was a finished top – my original design. 🙂
The quilting itself took me 3 month, the border/binding alone two weeks and the bling two more weeks.
There are 1.500 Swarovski crystals on this quilt. I used 100% cotton fabric, polyester batting (of a USA brand I will never ever use again- worst mistake I made – lesson learned!), piping around the compasses. All free motion quilting was done on my sit-down pfaff powerquilter 16.0 with Wonderfil threads.
The name of the Quilt : “ Rainbow of Hope“
Inspired from the happenings of daily life – we are all unique like the colors of the rainbow and we are all connected under the rainbow of hope.

Hope „Rainbow of hope“ does well on the different shows it´s intended to go.
Well wishing and crossed fingers are welcome! 🙂 🙂

Happy quilting!
